Although an enthusiastic fisherman, it warms my heart to know that the hunters and other outdoorsmen, are going to get a chance at that Kink Department. The first kink that occurs to me is one that I am afraid will be known to all the old duck hunters, but I know that it will be a great help to any of the “crew” who are not familiar with it. Have you ever sat out in your blind, or hung on to a “clamper” when the thermometer is way below the freezing mark, and watch your decoys gradually, but surely, become completely encased with ice? They look as much like a duck as one of the small chunks of ice floating nearby, and if there happens to be a sun they shine.
How can you avoid it? Easy! Just give each little wooden birdie a nice warm coat of any colorless grease. Anything will go; from lard to vaseline, and I have found that it more than re pays for the small amount of in convenience, and they will shed water like a real duck’s beck.
